Department of Adult congenital heart disease @ Policlinico San Donato
The ACHD Unit is devoted to the care of patients that were borned with a cardiac disease.
In our Centre we have a vertical model of treatment following our patients from pre-birth (fetal) to adulthood. We take care of the patients with a multidisciplinary team of professionals (acrdiologist, Interventionists, Surgeons, Psycologists) that cover all the aspects. We support patients and family with our Transition Clinic, when is time to move from the Pediatric to the adult setting.
A Psychological support is always available for those who need it, and the patient National Association (AICCA), may help them in all needs during hospitalization. We performe more the 300 interventional ctheterisation in adolescent and adult CHD patients every year.
The Unit participate in new study trials and projects as we believed that research represents an opportunity to improve treatment options.
